  1. That's interesting, especially the second one - thanks. I wonder if you could you do another - but scale it depending on where the ball was picked up? If we compare O'Dowda and Vyner, at a guess one will predominantly be picking the ball up with a lot of more the pitch "forwards" than the other. Maybe that's not what you're trying to show, but it'd be interesting to see if it was a trait of the player to pass backwards, or a symptom of where the pick up the ball. Is O'Dowda playing backwards most because that's his instinct, or is it because he's often the most advanced player we hav

  5. Faced their most dangerous attack before they even got in the ground then as it turns out
  6. Not sure whichever one of the idiots currently has ownership of their shared brain cell is worrying about what'll happen to the club to be honest!
  7. Personally I have a whole host of random teams, managers, and players I do or don't want to do well each year. There's not much rhyme or reason to it... maybe they just acted like a prat when we played them one year, or they played for us and I never liked them, or it's just random and I couldn't tell you why. It's pantomime stuff because a bit of rivalry in football is good fun... for that reason I'll be watching out for Sunderland and part of me will be hoping they don't get promoted. Doesn't mean I hate LJ or desperately want him to fail, just a bit of fun in my opinion. I don't even r
  8. I thought it was more than it encourages teams to spend like lunatics to get to the prem so they can earn the parachute money when they then get relegated, rather than encouraging them to spend once they get there? A large part of the issue is surely the disparity of wages between the prem and the championship. The only easy way I can think of sorting that is to enforce wage caps on the prem but can't see that being too likely.
  9. If Pearson starts getting results there might be a very worrying lack of stuff to argue about on here. Troubling times for OTIB!
  10. Exactly. He's the CEO of a large company and whoever or however decisions are made you have to back them publicly, even if you privately disagree. Would be extremely unprofessional otherwise.
  11. It's my birthday tomorrow. What am I going to tell my partner when she asks what my best gift was after I open hers...
  12. I'm not too bothered what happens for the rest of this season although it'd obviously be nice to go into next year with some momentum. I'll give him until around Christmas and then start to form a real opinion on him... although I'd hope to see some green shoots well before then. With the scale of the rebuild though I'll be looking at a lot more than just points on the board (unless we're 22nd or something). A season of consolidation and a clear plan on the pitch with his own players, then some kind of challenge the year after (2022/23) is realistic for me.
  13. I think the general quiet background noise of blokes munching on pasties or whatever is fine and it sounds eerily quiet without that. It's the chants and cheers that sound ridiculous to me. Should definitely be broadcast only though surely.
  14. I have no doubt you're right - but that implies to me he's now seeing his position as potentially under threat, or at least under scrutiny. I just wonder what stage it'd get to for Lansdown to pull the trigger. As @GrahamC mentioned he sounds a big fan, although it'd be extremely poor form for him to publicly air the dirty laundry between himself and his CEO/COO (whatever he is). My guess is he'll leave on publicly very good terms and probably seemingly of his own accord no matter what the reality is behind the scenes.
  15. It's just weird to me that some people struggle to comment fairly - like "Semenyo needs to improve on his final third decision making" or something, without sticking a "he's a league 2 player at best" / "he'll never make it" on the end. Massengo has been poor at times, Semenyo has big areas of his game to improve... and it's fair to critique and discuss that. Just really annoying when it then ends up being so black and white as you've said. Other side is though that I don't like it when people do jump on the fair comments as writing them off or being negative. Have to admit I've writ
